Clay Matthews is vexed -- like the rest of us -- by perplexing penalty

"Last week, OK, shame on me".

"When [Matthews] hit the quarterback, he lifted him and drove him into the ground", Corrente said. "I thought he made some outstanding throws, made good decisions". At the same time, I don't know what else to do. So did a pass from Cousins that bounced off Laquon Treadwell's hands late in the fourth quarter that was intercepted by Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. He was impressive in pass-catching, though, totaling 52 receiving yards on three receptions for a 17.3 yards per catch average. But neither team has won the division when losing the meeting between the 2 teams in Green Bay.

Rodgers was a participant in practice on Saturday after being held out on Wednesday and Thursday to focus on rehab ahead of this weekend's game against the Minnesota Vikings. That Green Bay drive ended with a 37-yard Mason Crosby field goal just before halftime.

Even though he missed two field goal attempts earlier in the game, the rookie kicker could still redeem himself with a 35-yard field goal.

The skill of having short-term memory as a quarterback is one Cousins has learned to master throughout the years.

"(Cousins) just keeps going", Diggs said. I've been benched and sat out of the rest of the season because I wasn't playing well enough. We've all had to wait our turn and we've all failed and learned from it.

"I thought the call on Danielle on hitting him in the back was bad", Zimmer said. "He's got the right wiring, and he'll be alright".

Green Bay star Aaron Rodgers played with a brace on his injured left knee and threw for 281 yards and a 9-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams.

And the controversy sparked by the penalty - just or not - speaks to the increasing gray area created by the National Football League messing with the roughing rules again in the offseason.

The Packers caught Minnesota off guard on an 11-yard draw with Ty Montgomery, before Rodgers escaped the pocket and - on the move - found Jimmy Graham for a 27-yard gain with seven seconds remaining. In some ways, Zimmer said, the tie may help Minnesota down the road.

First off, great toss by Cousins.
